Tackling Poverty – Funding available through Dumfries and Galloway Council

Do you want to stand up to poverty?
Do you have an idea you want to talk up?
This is your chance to take action and tackle poverty and make a real difference for those who need it the most.


Our Council has made available £240,000 to fund projects developed by community groups and local people which will make a real difference by standing up to poverty in their communities.

Get your application in quickly to apply today for an area based grant or grants of up to £20,000.

Closing date for you to stand up, talk up and take action is midnight on 21st December 2017.

Through a participatory budgeting approach we are giving local people the chance to vote on which projects they want to see funded and make a difference to local people’s lives.
